Employment/Purpose

A Video component is used to play the video in the browser. Like audio, you can either use the src property to specify an URL of the video resource, or use the setContent method to specify a dynamically generated video. Users can control the video by play, stop and pause.

Example

 <video src="zk.mp4" controls="true" autoplay="true" loop="true" />

Supports HTML5

The Video component is based on HTML 5's <video> tag, and supports the following properties: src, autoplay, controls, loop, playbackRate, dimBackground, preload, clipToFit, poster, playsinline and crossorigin.

Note: autoplay policy is different between browsers.

https://webkit.org/blog/7734/auto-play-policy-changes-for-macos/

Multiple Sources

Most browsers do not support all the video formats, so you can specify multiple source files in different formats for different browsers. If the first format is not supported by the browser, it will fallback to the 2nd format. For example:

 <video src="zk.mp4, zk.webm, zk.ogg" />

enableFullScreen

For security reasons, fullScreen API can only be initiated by an user gesture. Therefore the Video component only provides a client-side method enableFullScreen() to enable the full screen mode.

<video id="player" src="zk.mp4" controls="true"/>
<button xmlns:w="client" w:onClick="zk.$('$player').enableFullScreen()" />

dimBackground

The Video component provides a theater mode, If dimBackground="true", the whole page will be covered by translucent black by default except the Video.

When the theater mode is enabled, user can click anywhere on the page outside the Video to disable theater mode and return to the normal view.

 <video src="zk.mp4" dimBackground="true" />

By default, css of dimBackground has two properties as shown in the following css code.

You can also customize the background in your preference by simply overriding .z-video-dim-background in css.

<style>
.z-video-dim-background {
    background: black;
    opacity: 0.8;
}
</style>

playbackRate

The Video component provides setPlaybackRate(double) to control the video playing speed. The valid value depends on the displayed browser.

Default: 1.0

 <video src="zk.mp4" playbackRate="0.5" />

currentTime

The Video component provides setCurrentTime(double) to jump to the specified time-point (in seconds) of the playback video.

 <video src="zk.mp4" currentTime="60" />

playing

The Video component provides setPlaying(boolean) to play or pause the video.

playing="true" is same as invoking play(); playing="false" is same as invoking pause().

 <video src="zk.mp4" playing="false" />

volume

The Video component provides setVolume(double) to change the volume. The value should range between 0.0 and 1.0.

Default: 1.0

 <video src="zk.mp4" volume="0.5" />

muted

The Video component provides setMuted(boolean) to mute the video.

Default: false

 <video src="zk.mp4" muted="true" />

clipToFit

The Video component provides setClipToFit(boolean) to clip the video when the source size doesn't fit the size specified in the Video tag.

For example:

The source image used in the sample below is 450 * 320. When you set width="300px", height="320px", by default, blank space will be inserted above and below the video to preserve the aspect ratio (left image); when you set clipToFit="true", it will cut off the sides and fill up the space (right image).

ClipToFit(false).png ClipToFit(true).png

  <video width="300px" height="320px" src="zk.mp4" style="border: 1px solid red;" />
  <video width="300px" height="320px" src="zk.mp4" style="border: 1px solid red;" clipToFit="true" />

StateChangeEvent

When you call play(), stop() or pause() StateChangeEvent will be triggered. You can check the current state by calling event.getState(). Video has three states, and you can access them by using Video.PLAY, Video.STOP and Video.PAUSE.

For example:

If you want to do something after the video starts to play, you can write codes as shown below (MVVM style).

  <video onStateChange="@command('stateChange', event=event)" />
  @Command
  public void stateChange(@BindingParam("event") StateChangeEvent event) {
    if (event.getState() == Video.PLAY) {
      // do something...
    }
  }

Video component also provides isPlaying(), isPaused() and isStopped() methods to check the video state.
